#ShackBibleThrowDown – Can “eternal punishment” end?

An interesting juxtaposition here:

“Sodom…serve[s] as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire” (Jude 1.7).

“However, I will restore the fortunes of Sodom and her daughters” (Ezekiel 16.53).

Eternal punishment followed by restoration.


  1. For the record, my argument for this doesn’t rest on this prooftext. I include it above as a suggestion that the Bible thinks differently than we do about things that are “eternal” (“olam” in Hebrew, “aeonian” in Greek).
